The ICO has introduced a suite of resources aimed at improving the way data is managed in the healthcare sector. The launch of these new tools follows a number of audits conducted by the ICO, in which they discovered that a third of health organisations did not have an information asset register or nominated information asset owners and more than 200 self-reported incidents of data being posted or faxed to the incorrect recipient in the last financial year. The resources are designed to complement existing ICO guidance and to offer advice that will assist data protection officers and other designated individuals to provide training for colleagues to ensure they are compliant with data protection legislation.
